    Work with an advisor to design a specialized course of study.

    Each MPS student selects or is assigned a faculty advisor. Students are not required to, but may form a committee by adding more faculty members to help him or her develop a comprehensive plan of study, consistent with the formal requirements of the degree. The advisor or committee also approves and guides the student's problem-solving project and appraises his or her progress by means of oral or written examinations.
